Good for him! He deserves the fame after his performance against a legend like Penn. I'm still surprised Penn wants to fight again after that

Of course he is getting recognized now, he was finally able to get a big money fight. Penns name brings popularity, Yair deserved the opportunity & proved himself yet again

He definitely should have been recognized by fans before, he has had some great fights so far! Although not many big name fights, but that shouldn't be what it's about

Most of his wins were decision though. Not saying he isn't talented, but decision wins aren't normally the fights that are talked about unless a bad decision. I've personally liked him for years tho, so I'm not sure why people are just now catching on
